Here at news.bwin HQ, we’re all about consistency. That’s why there’s not a weekend that passes by where we don’t serve up a splendidly-priced treble held together by a loose theme.
How many winners we’ve hit is an issue we’d rather not talk about, as our talent lies not so much in lining pockets, but finding a subject matter that ties three of ten Premier League fixtures together on a weekly basis. Where’s the fun in winning lots of money after all?
This week Norwich, Stoke and Swansea have been smothered in our faint adhesive to mould the Fallen Cities treble, which pays a shade short of 7/1 if successful.
For these teams to make it rain, all they must do is lose their respective matches with Manchester City, Southampton and Bournemouth. Here’s why they will…
Absolute banker territory here – a weakened Citizens outfit won 3-0 at Carrow Road earlier in the campaign and, after having a week’s rest since spanking Aston Villa last time out, their strongest fit XI will certainly do the business.
That aforementioned defeat started a streak of nine reverses in ten for Alex Neil’s men, who must be especially wary of white-hot Sergio Aguero, who has scored six in five starts versus this foe.
Southampton to beat Stoke City @ 8/5
Bit more of a risky wager this one, with the Saints short of form at present, but Stoke have been prone to lapses on the homestead in games they’d be expected to prevail this season.
They’ve lost to West Bromwich Albion, Watford and Crystal Palace at the Britannia this term, all in unexpected fashion, while Mark Hughes men have only overcame Southampton in two Premier League meetings.
Bournemouth to beat Swansea City @ 91/100
An odds-on Bournemouth are likely to scare away plenty of punters, but they’ll prove a shrewd bet this weekend.
The Cherries have lost just three top-flight fixtures since the turn of the year, picking up seven points from the previous nine up for grabs.
Swansea are reaping the rewards of an upturn in form of late, but they’ve still been beaten on six of their last ten road trips so side with the hosts as they look to cement survival.
